HOLLIS CIRCULATION LIAISONS MEETING

May 2, 2000 9:15-10:45 Widener Conference Room

Informal meeting notes (MLC)

Introductions

Old Business

  1. TFSCP update. Plan on attending the June meeting, as we review implementation plans. MC/EM to have worksheets available to facilitate the process.
  2. New/newer circ libraries: Harvard-Yenching planning for fall implementation of FETCHERRS. They are evaluating the use of HOLLIS for online circ and Course Reserves.
  3. Other? 

New Business

  1. Calendar data. See http://hul.harvard.edu/cmtes/circl/calendars.html. Widener and Morse Music Reserve need to provide calendar data for dates after June. These are all set as of 5/19/00.
  2. Discussion of handling of LOST and MISSING items (Marcella Flaherty, Gutman Lib.)
  3. Other? a) Eddie Doctoroff initiated a discussion of possible carrel availability at other libraries. b) MC asked about address hiercrchy change date for undergraduate notices. Jon Lanham offered to look through previous years' records of this change to establish a predictable date pattern that we can use each year. Thus, we have:

Commencement: switch hierarchy to S(ummer), P(arent), L(ocal),O(ffice)

Friday before Freshman Week (i.e., effective for products on Monday of Freshman Week): switch hierarchy back to L/P/S/O

So, for 2000, the hierarchy should be switched on Commencement, 8 June. The switchback should occur on Friday, 8 September--effective Monday, 11 September (the first day of Freshman Week).

Note: because we cannot move changes into production on weekends, the rollover will actually be effective Friday, September 8.

For 2001, switch on Commencement, 7 June; switchback Friday, 31 August--effective Monday, 3 September, Monday of Freshman Week (which is actually Labor Day).

Note: because we cannot move changes into production on weekends, the rollover will actually be effective Friday, August 31.

Next Meeting: June 6, 2000 -- 9:15-10:45 - OIS Conference Room
